no mistake the obama and the romney war rooms are looking at the nine critical swing states from florida to nevada. this is a very close race. every state matters including iowa and its six electoral votes. i want to talk about that for a second because the latest poll from iowa has president obama leading 50% to 46%. that still is within the gravis marketing survey 4-point margin of error. it is a state that the obama war room won four years ago. it needs to keep out of romney's hands to better its odds of winning re-election. for more perspective on the final seven days of the campaign, we're going to turn to one of our favorite political reporters, carla mayor nucci. it was interesting because of course if mitt romney does not win ohio, i mean, he has to win iowa. >> this has been a battleground for how long now? those early voting -- early voting. >> jennifer: it is only six electoral votes. early voting in iowa is largely in the president's favor. >> same thing in colorado. the obama campaign has that ground game down. particularly, i went door-to-door with latino canvas wor
